I am the designer behind Erineen Designs. I design graphics and knitwear. I create knitwear patterns that are easy to knit and engaging. And I also help small business owners create businesses they love.
I love clean lines, pretty dresses, dogs, and a good cup of coffee!
My mom, Catherine, was born and raised in County Galway, Ireland and bits of her heritage were woven throughout my childhood here in the USA: from homemade soda bread and imported Irish candy to Irish music playing on the radio.
As a small child I learned that when you add “–een” to something, it makes it small and dear. So my parents called me Erineen and my brother Seaneen. When it came time to name my company, I knew it needed to pay homage to my mom, who I lost 20 years ago to cancer. So if I tell the story of her homeland through my designs, then a little bit of being called Erineen—and all of the beautiful family history it stands for—will always stay with me. And I get to share it with all of you.
